Audi Q3 (2019 – 2020)

Published on 12. 06. 2020

Problem description:

The breaking point for the release of the front passenger airbag in the console may not have been fabricated correctly. As a result, the airbag may not penetrate the console as required in the event of deployment.

This will impair its restraining and protective functions, increasing the risk of an injury.

The Audi Q3 models affected by this recall were manufactured between April 2019 and January 2020.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Audi dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle's history

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
